Re: NVDA may Crash with inactivity on older Windows 10 computer

That is pretty old.

I wonder if it would benefit from a completely clean install of windows and your other applications?
That, and replacing the spinning drive with a solid state one if it still has a conventional hard drive might get a couple more years out of it.

Hi Group,

OK, I should have mentioned this in my original post. The computer is an
8 year old AMD clone with 16 GB RAM and a 6 core processor.

What's older? What does winver say when you run it?

What kind of sound device?
What version of NVDA?
What add-ons are you running?

After not touching it for several hours, NVDA does not work.
Does the same happen with Narrator, if you leave that running for
several hours instead?

I know the main sound card through which NVDA voices is working
because other sounds I can play with hotkeys do indeed work.
Can you give an example of that?

if I press the hotkey used to launch it, it seems to reload as if it
had crashed and needed to be restarted.
Please explain that.
NVDA will always restart when you press its shortcut key, regardless
of whether it had been running, crashed, or stopped before.
What, in the way it acts when you press the shortcut key, makes you
think it is recovering from a crash? How is it different than pressing
the shortcut key while NVDA is working normally?

For a nation to claim it has always been great, needs no improvement and to cling to its past achievements is no virtue!
